There’s just one week left in the Saratoga horse racing season, which comes to a close on Labor Day (Monday, September 4), and as the meet heads to the finish line, the city will celebrate with its annual the Final Stretch Music Festival around town this weekend.
But this year’s free fest has been seriously downsized. Just last year the Final Stretch featured seven bands in five locations over the course of two nights. This year, however, the entertainment has shrunk to four bands at four locations on just one night – Saturday (September 2).
It’s still free though, and the fest runs from 7-11pm.
Here’s the line-up of who’s playing where on Saturday evening:
FENIMORE BLUES: Caroline Street
JEFF BRISBIN: Adirondack Trust Company
ALAN DARCY: Ben & Jerry’s
SARATOGA SOUNDTRACK CHORUS: Broadway
